miss you...

My lovely lovely friend just left work on maternity leave. Excited as we all are about the baby, we're missing her already!
I made this card for my department to give to her.  The owls represent each member of my department (I'm the pushy little turquoise one at the front!)
See, we're all really wise :)
Miss You
miss you... - Close-Up
I had so much fun making this card.  I used THIS set of Hero Arts owls, and added THIS tiny one, stamping them onto papers by Papertrey Ink and perching them on some yummy Ribbon Girl twine.  The sentiment was typed and printed onto the kraft cardstock, then I added THESE Thickers. Love 'em.
Hope you have a great weekend.
